I had my first...and last... encounter with Gun World today. I noticed that most of these reviews are from people who have purchased firearms, so let me tell you about my experience when you want to sell. The owner must have positively thought he saw the word "sucker" printed on my forehead when I walked into his store...simply because I'm a woman maybe? I had an Ithaca 12 ga., a Winchester 30-30 lever action, and a Colt 38 revolver (officers model, 1st issue). I'll ballpark their high end value at $1600.00. I researched these firearms... I know the value...low and high end. I figured he'd probably hit somewhere in the middle. He offered me $400.00...for all 3. Now...I'm not a math genius, but wow...what a profit margin. I had a S&W 357 with a 4" barrel on my list. He offered me $300.00. He has one listed on his website under used firearms for $600.00. What a crook...if you want to sell, go elsewhere. I certainly will. I've also decided that Gun World writes their own reviews, Ha.
Great selection, staff was nice and very knowledgeble, prices were a little high but they did negotiate and I came out happy owning a new gun. Also it's easy for other shops to make claims and promises of cheaper prices and NEVER have anything in stock.
BEST selection in town prices are competitive, more pistols and rifles than any other place I've seen!
I been looking for a nice gun store with a good selection. I went to some others gun shops in Burbank and they did not have a decent selection. When I first walked in to Gun World I thought it was going to be the worst of the three I had been to that day in Burbank. The front of the store consisted of a counter, with ammo stacked to the ceiling behind it and two display case one with scopes and one with knives. I almost left but something told me there was more. The counter was packed and there was four salesman behind counter. It was at that pointed that I noticed a doorway going to what I thought was a stock room a first. I went through the door way and my jaw hit the floor as I was enveloped by a warm fuzzy feeling. Like a kid in a candy store!
It was the largest selection of hand guns, AR type rifle and shotguns I have ever seen. They had all the best optic Nightforce, Trijicon, EOTechs and Leupold. There must have been 40 different AGOGS to choose from! The even had the Barrett MRAD .338 Lap! They had four case full of hand guns. They must have three or four hundred different hand gun models. This has to be the best selection in all of Southern California
I was after a Sig Sauer pistol. The MK25 Navy. A hard to get P226 9mm sub type. To my amazement they had it.
This place is a hidden gem. I have no idea why people would complain about the prices. They were in line with the other store I been to. Some were $10 or $20 higher and some were lower.
The sale men where surprisingly down to earth. None of the, if you do not know what I know you’re an idiot attitude like some store I had been too. As a matter of fact I saw one salesman talk a first time buyer out of making the purchase that day, instead recommending she first go to the range to try the gun out first. That’s sound advice in my book try before you buy. Gun World is Los Angeles best gun store. Better than the firearms shop in Culver City, to much attitude, and better then it two rival in Burbank. Very happy Customer thank you Gun World.
AWESOME GUN STORE – OMG, this is the best gun store I've been too. They have a huge selection, best customer service. When I came into the store, I had no knowledge of guns, but they took the time to go over everything I needed to know and helped me find the right gun for me to purchase my first gun. I didn't know what the difference from hollow points to full metal jackets. So happy I went. Now I feel safe in my home. I told all my friends to go there.
You know, I read the above reviews and I understand where some of you are coming from. But as I far as I am concerned, I am a loyal customer.. Having been to the few gun shops we have in CA, I was put off by the insiders club feel. I felt the selection was limited at other places, and particularly at the "Venice" shop, I saw that nobody really felt the need to sell to me.
I went to gun world on saturday with my wife and was impressed greatly with the selection of rifles, handguns and shotguns. They had all of the pistols I was interested in buying. The salesman (Mark) was knowledgeable and friendly. Unlike some other places, I didn't feel embarrassed to have my wife there. Very professional. Very clean.. no overly-jokey doofis posters (as I call 'em, maybe y'all like those) or crayzed political signage. Just great gun selection and a pro staff.
I wound up getting the 9mm USP. But it was in stock, and I was really paying for the advice, and for the environment in which the weapon was sold.
I am now, and will be a loyal customer. Simply because the experience was what I needed it to be.
This place deserves more credit. So much so that I will make it my first review. I have been to most of the gun stores in Los Angeles, and I have not seen a larger or higher quality selection in any of the other venues. They have all the top quality stuff. The people that work at Gun World will actually ask you if you need help, have questions, or would like to take something out of the many wood display cases for a closer look. Most of the employees that I have dealt with are knowledgeable and faster than Google as far as accurate info, and recommendations. I have read allot of reviews that complain about the prices to these people I say they will match most local ads. Buying a gun is allot like a car or a mattress, there is almost always room for negotiation. I have never seen a thug in the store. Ever. I have also never seen a mess or dust in the cases or on the guns on the wall or in the cases. They seem to run a tight ship. The selection is top notch. The also have some limited run fire arms on hand, so if you want something more unique they have that covered.
This Gun Shop -Gun World- Is An All-Around Wnner – It is so hard to find a good gun store. In less you are buddies with the sale men or know everything about guns it can be hard to get the time of day in most gun stores. This is the only gun shop where this has not happened to me. The employees really know there guns. This alone make going to Gun World worth it. Add there great selection and prices and the best selection of accessories and ammo I have seen and this place is an all-around winner
cannot say enough good things about Gun World – I was not even sure if I wanted a gun. After going to other gun shops I was about to give up it was just too confusing. When I went in to Gun World there was no high pressure sale pitch as a matter fact they suggested that I go to the firing line(a target range0 and try a few caliber and models out before I pick a handgun. This could not have been better advice.
On my second trip I was by a very polite and most friendly sales man. Quite a contrast to the other store I went too. Any way Gun World is a great shop they are well versed in the gun they sale. They have a huge selection and they had what I wanted in stock and they even gave me a discount. Great people cannot say enough good things about the people who work there.
A friendly staff that you just don't find in other gun store – Large selection they had all the Glock models lot of S&W and a huge Kimber selection. A friendly staff that you just do not find in other gun store. Why is it that it so hard for gun store to find friendly staff? Gun World certainly does not seem to have this problem. The $50.00 one year range membership that they gave me with my Kimber purchase was just a great bonus.
